Hi David,

Thanks for volunteering to do this.

I recall we discussed whether to use LF or native. But I don't recall  
the outcome.

The reason to use LF is for Windows users who use unix tools. The  
reason to use native is for Windows users who use native tools  
(Notepad). I personally don't care, except that my svn preferences  
file is set up to use LF for new files (for another project).
